GJ local hosts treasure hunt
A treasure hunt is amongst us now.
To win, read this story and find out how.
A chance to look for clues and have some fun,
join the hunt under the new spring sun.
Courtney Reynolds has orchestrated a treasure hunt to promote Seeds of Revolution, a local clothing store, and to provide a fun community opportunity.
This month’s “A Hunt to Remember” has three spots available with the final round set to start on April 16. The winner will receive a custom t-shirt, hand-drawn stickers and an undisclosed surprise award.
“I originally came up with the idea to help increase sales for my friends’ store and to gain exposure for my writing and artwork,” said Reynolds. “I love art and writing so this is a good creative outlet and a way for people to have some fun.”
In order to qualify for a spot in the final round Reynolds said she simply wants a crazy picture of the contestant to be posted on the “A Hunt To Remember” Facebook page.
Reynolds’ original plan was to have the hunters find clues at Rocky Mountain Park in Clifton, then post descriptions of the clues to the Facebook page to qualify for the final round. Reynolds was disappointed when only three hunters found clues, so she switched to the ‘crazy face’ idea to rope in more finalists.
“I wanted to speed things up after more people didn’t find clues, so now we’re waiting for three more finalists to get things going again,” Reynolds said.
Reynolds seemed excited about her plans for the final round and said she couldn’t reveal some of the details yet, except that there will be some digging involved.
Reynolds was always shy when it came to presenting her writing and artwork until she participated in a public poetry reading at Seeds of Revolution.
“That poetry reading helped me finally get over my stage fright, so now I’m brave enough to host these treasure hunts,” said Reynolds.
Seeds of Revolution opened in April of 2011 and is located at 639 Main St. Unit A. According to its website, http://www.seedsofrevolution.com, the store specializes in clothing styles such as tattoo, graffiti, movies, and pop culture including locally made clothing.
